Tear Gas fired at Comoros Mosque

Mosques have been shut to prevent the spread of the virus

Security forces in Comoros have used tear gas to disperse people who had congregated in mosques in violation of the country’s coronavirus lockdown regulations.

This happened on the island of Anjouan late on Saturday, and has been condemned by opposition politicians.

During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and sex from sunrise to sunset and usually gather at dusk to break their fast and pray.

President Azali Assoumani has imposed a nightly curfew even though the Indian Ocean archipelago is one of only two nations in Africa that is yet to record a single case of the virus.

The other country is Lesotho.
